Philips UV-quartz glass for optimal lighting performance

UV-quartz glass provides more powerful light on the road and the highest level of resistance to vibrations and extremes of temperature. It virtually eliminates the risk of explosion. Philips quartz glass with UV block, filters out harmful ultraviolet rays that are potentially damaging to modern plastic head lighting units.

Quartz-glass benefits

  • More powerful light: Quartz glass high resistance allows for increased pressure inside the lamp and thus generates more powerful light.


  • Better resistance: Philips quartz glass lamp (filament at 2 650°C and glass at 800°C) is capable to withstand a severe thermal shock.

  • Optimal protection against ultraviolet rays: A special anti-UV coating integrated in Philips quartz glass lamps protects against harmful ultraviolet rays. The anti-UV coating prevents plastic head lighting units from yellowing.
